Default How to display a .GIF image?

Please Login to Remove!

How does one go about displaying a GIF image within an application? I've read that it is possible to display bitmaps but what about gifs?

You can created EncodedImage object using static methods EncodedImage.createEncodedImage() and draw it using one of Graphics.drawImage() methods.

Thanks Skipper I managed to figure out how to create the encoded image. Now I just have to figure out how to display it on my MainScreen. I'll post a separate thread for that.

You ale welcome!

I did it next way:
- extend net.rim.device.api.ui.Field and override method paint(Graphics g).
- call g.drawImage(startX, startY, width, height, image, 0, left, top) inside overriden paint(),
where image is EncodedImage object.
